Law & Order: Mariska Hargitay Boot-Free, Shares "Happy Feet" Dance

Yup, that's right. We're back for some more video messaging fun between NBC's Law & Order: SVU and Organized Crime stars Christopher Meloni (Elliot Stabler) and Mariska Hargitay (Olivia Benson). Now the last time we checked in, Meloni was dropping two food-themed videos to Hargitay that took viewers onto the set and behind the scenes (and left us hungry). But this round goes to Hargitay, who has every reason to want to celebrate with the world now that she's able to get around without the boot.

Here's a look at Hargitay back on set, boot-free, and showing off her "happy feet" for Meloni and everyone else to see (and yes, there is a "happy feet" dance):
